Getting people potable water in underdeveloped nations is a difficult and important problem. There are far too many places where people don't have access to clean drinking water, and it's a serious global health crisis. That's why this new Max Water concept is so exciting.
Basically, it's a wind-powered device that pulls water out of the air and turns it into regular old drinking water. It's pretty darned efficient, too, as the inventor claims it can bring in 10,000 liters of H20 per day of use. It's not cheap, with the price expected to be $43,000 when it's ready for use, but installing just one of these in a village or poor area could help hundreds if not thousands of people get the clean water they so desperately need. Here's hoping this thing comes to fruition.
